All Truth - Part 7. This is the seventh installment in the series on All Truth. The lessons are based on the book All Truth” by J. Eustice Mills. This lesson covers three topics 1) The ministry of Paul, 2) The dispensation given to Paul, and 3) the particular riches of this dispensation which is called The Mystery.
Resurrection, Redemption, Reconciliation, and the 7 things Jesus said on the Cross. April 11, 2004 celebrates the resurrection of Christ Jesus on Easter Sunday. In one week, from the triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the cries of “crucify him” in front of Pilate, God prepared the way for reconciliation, redemption, and resurrection for mankind when you accept Christ as your personal savior. The heart of mankind wishes to know love, joy, and peace, yet we learn in scripture that the heart of man is full of vanity. How does man satisfy their hearts desire?
Palm Sunday - Two Entrances Into Jerusalem. The passage in Matthew 4:12-17 identifies the beginning of the Lords ministry whereas Palm Sunday marks the end of His earthly ministry. The four periods of Jesus’ ministry was in this way: 1) The Offering of The Kingdom (Matt 4:12-17), 2) The Offering of The King (Matt 8:1-3), 3) The Rejection of The King (which is referenced four times in each Gospel book: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John... and in each reference shares a different aspect of His rejection - for example in Matthew, these four references are Matt 16:21, 17:22, 20:18, 20:28.
According to the scriptures, thirty-six distinct prophecies were fulfilled in one day when Christ was taken prisoner and crucified on the cross. This 24 hour period includes the last twelve hours of Jesus which has been portrayed in the movie “The Passion of Christ”. We are reminded in Acts 1:1-3 of the passion and the more important fact that He rose again.
All Truth - Part 6. God has given us the opportunity to understand what His program is today but in Christianity it is often obscured by philosophy and vain deceit, even after tradition or religion. The pursuit of these things has nullified the proper understanding of our calling or specific mail and consequently, Christians don’t even understand their marching orders for today.
Counterfeit Christianity. The Bible warns us of false prophets, false doctrine, and false worship. Another word for false is counterfeit. In lieu of religion and tradition that we have seen can make the word of God of none effect, how do you prepare yourself against counterfeit Christianity? By studying the truth which is the Word of God. Jesus said,” I am the way, the truth, and the Life”. There are several passages in scripture that warn us of counterfeit Christianity.
